clipboardThe Women’s Club of Costa Rica (WCCR) is a social and charitable organization of women, founded in 1940, representing many cultures and nationalities.

We are an English speaking group that offers diverse opportunities for “hands-on” service in the community as well as personal growth, and members are encouraged to participate.  Our many activities, social events, and fund-raising opportunities tempt our members into action! Each year, several of our events are designed to raise funds for the projects we support.  Those involved in helping raise the needed funds enjoy increased opportunities for social and professional networking and have fun in the process.

Our main activities include: 

  • Building friendships through social events –  Learn more!
  • Providing University Grants to low income Costa Rican students  –  Learn more!
  • Providing low cost books to rural school children across Costa Rica  –  Learn more!   

We are a welcoming group from a diverse range of ages, interests and experiences.  If you have just moved or are about to move to Costa Rica, we can provide guidance as you make your transition into a new culture and country.

Amigos Asociados, our male friends and supporters, lend a helping hand when needed.

We look forward to having you join us!
